Casey Tanner Death – Gay adult performer Casey Tanner has passed away suddenly, according to the website Str8UpGayPorn.com. Casey Tanner of San Diego, California also known to many as Slade Michael Ferris was announced dead today, Sunday, the 16th of April 2023. He died at the young age of 28. According to reports, Slade had been suffering from health problems for years, and after contracting pneumonia last month, his organs began failing.
What happened to Casey Tanner?
Slade had been fighting for his life in a hospital since last weekend. News of his passing was announced on Sunday, April 16, although a cause of death has not been made public. The former Helix Studios model was originally from Ohio and had been living in San Diego for the last six years with his long-term boyfriend, Ariq Roth.
He had health problems that for many years had been progressing. With the combination of multiple failed organs, and contracting pneumonia for about the last month of his life, I assure you he passed comfortably in hospice care. It is unreal the amount of love and outreach we have had, and I’m sure all can understand how it is challenging to get back to every message.
Who was Casey Tanner?
Slade was born July 14, 1994, in Zanesville, Ohio son of Tonya (Jeff Bates) Morrison and Bryce (Traci) Ferris. Slade felt at home wherever he was and liked doing things his way. Slade’s smile and charm were so strong that they could take over a room. Everyone who met him loved and adored him. He was happy with himself, and he loved living in Hillcrest.
Slade had a lot of different jobs when he was young, and he liked being a stay-at-home dad to his sweet dog Darlah. Between 2013 and 2016, Slade was in almost two dozen scenes at Helix, including the award-winning Helix Academy. His famous YouTube videos with his then-boyfriend Blake Mitchell also made headlines over the years. The duo remained friends after breaking up in 2016, and Blake (Lane) paid tribute to him today.
The family will release an obituary and funeral arrangements for Casey Tanner.
